Intrepid gets last laugh

IT TOOK A COURAGEOUS EFFORT from the Hopefield Stables out-of-form seven-year-old chestnut Intrepid Dancer and jockey Anderson Trotman for them to land yesterday’s feature race – the Valentine’s Day Handicap over 1.100 metres – at the Garrison Savannah.

Going off at the decent price of 5-1 in the event for horses rated 85-65, Trotman settled the Liz Deane trainee behind front-runners Slip Stream and Run Alke Run.

As the horses approached the two-furlong marker, Run Alke Run’s modest early challenge was short-lived, leaving Slip Stream with a treasured lead entering the homestretch.

It was a timely return to form for Intrepid Dancer, who came with a strong run at the end to surge by a resilient Slip Stream with Rasheed Hughes in the saddle.
